Anti-Bribery and Corruption


Bribery is something that happens more often than you may think! In the UK, up to 1 in 4 organisations come under pressure to accept bribes or make illegal payments every year; or lose business to competitors as a result of bribes.

This Anti-Bribery Course aims to raise awareness. It explains the four offences that can be committed under The Bribery Act. And it looks at the fine line between gifts and bribes – when is it acceptable to give a gift or hospitality? And when might they be seen as a bribe?

It also explains what you should look out for – the signs that suggest that bribery might be taking place. It looks at what you should do if you’ve been given, offered or promised a gift or hospitality and think it might be a bribe, or if you suspect someone else is involved in bribery.

Case studies are used throughout the Anti-Bribery and Corruption course to provide real-life examples. Lessons and examples are relevant to any industry, but the primary focus of study is financial institutions, including:

  • Banks
  • Credit unions
  • Asset managers
  • Insurance
  • Money-services-businesses (MSBs)
  • Securities broker-dealers
  • Credit card issuers
  • Alternate payment systems
  • People new to anti-bribery and corruption compliance
  • Professionals working in front-line ABC positions
